    Experiência muito agradável e de muito valor!
    Roberto_M, Jul 2023
    Monica e suas filhas são excelentes anfitriãs. Nos passaram uma excelente experiência da gastronomia piemontesa e todo prazer e técnicas de preparação dos pratos. Além disso criaram uma ambientação magnífica para a degustação e uma boa conversa para troca de experiências. Nos sentimos em casa. Uma experiência diferente e que nos trouxe muito valor.
